Whatever doesn't serve us, we should learn how to let it go. The earth gives us small clues of life, and sometimes the answers for all of our questions lies right in front of our eyes. Just as the trees bears us fruit and oxygen to eat and breath so we can be alive. We give the tree carbon dioxide and from time to time water so the tree can sustain life. It's a cycle of exchange life so we can survive. When the leaves and everything dies off the tree, it's reborn with more fruit and leaves…
"Because permafrost is so cold, it has a lot of organic matter that just never breaks down, because microbes can't get to it.
